Is the attack on safer nicotine products about public health?
I have an email in with Joe Buscaino’s office right now probing a little further. As an LA Resident, I would kind of love to support this guy, especially if he has a reasonable stance on harm reduction and adult use of vapor products. I haven’t used the sentence “Vape Friendly CA Politician” ever I don’t think.
I’m remaining cautiously optimistic and waiting to hear back from his office before giving this guy my support. Let me know YOUR gut feeling down below. Is it possible to have politicians that don’t bend to billionaires?
Apart from being one of my more recent THR heroes, Ethan Nadelmann has been one of the most outspoken critics of the current ‘War on Drugs’. Rolling Stone Magazine called him “The driving force for the legalization of marijuana in America” he has been defending cannabis and drugs his entire career. He is also the founder of Drug Policy Alliance, a New York City based non-profit. Their goal is to “reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies”.

My dude PoonSauce invited me on his live stream this weekend. We had a really fantastic conversation about vaping, advocacy, burn out, smoking, science. Had a lot of fun. Definitely worth checking out the replay IMO.
States are responding to their own outbreaks of COVID-19 by implementing different versions of social distancing and shutting down non-essential services. While some of these businesses are being granted exemptions (for example, restaurants can still offer curbside pick-up and delivery and liquor stores are open with strict social distancing protocols), there are questions about whether or not vape shops are allowed to remain open in any capacity.
Thankfully CASAA has made it incredibly easy to to take action and make your voice heard
Many businesses were forced to shut their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Italy, which got hit the hardest so far by COVID-19, gave an exemption to essential stores such as grocery stores, pharmacies, news agencies and… tobacco shops? Dr. Riccardo Polosa did not agree with that.
They can’t ruin the science forever?
